Imagine the abundance of a Wisconsin farm on a late August evening: tall corn, bursting tomatoes, bright peppers, sprawling squash vines, and fireflies darting among the plants. Now add in a delicious, multi-course meal prepared by Milwaukee's finest farm-to-table chefs, cocktails, and dessert and you've got yourself a Fondy Farm Feast. Please join us as we celebrate food and community at the 2013 Fondy Farm Feast.
Date and Time: Sunday, August 25, 2013 3:30 pm- twilight (Farm tours begin at 3:30 pm; dinner begins at 5:15 pm). Event takes place rain or shine.
Location: Fondy Farm, 821 County Highway P, Port Washington, WI 53004
Tickets:* $100 per person, advance purchase only.
In addition to an amazing meal, the Fondy Farm Feast includes tractor-led farm tours, conversations with chefs and farmers, and great local music by blues guitarists Matt Tyner and Rolf Wessel. Free parking on the farm. Dress is farm casual: jeans and boots are just fine! All guests receive a commemorative 2013 Feast glass.
Diners have a choice of vegan, vegetarian, or no preference. You will be asked to indicate your dietary preference when you purchase on-line.
All proceeds benefit Fondy Food Center and its programs – Fondy Farmers Market (2200 W. Fond du Lac Avenue, Milwaukee) and Fondy Farm (Port Washington).
